Take a closer in-depth look at Thematic Pavilion of Architect Expo: World-class benchmarking space that every designer should know

“Similar to World Expo or World Pavilion, we replace countries with suppliers or brands where young architects have a chance to design various pavilions in that brand,”

said Khun Manatspong Sanguanwuthirojana from Hypothesis as curator of Thematic Pavilion in Architect’22.

Architects and pavilions go hand in hand.  Those familiar with world-class exhibitions will certainly be acquainted with the name Serpentine Pavilion, where architects from around the world have showcased their craft and skills in London, World Expo where each country represents itself at the well-known Expo in Dubai, or MPAVILION in Melbourne. All these venues demonstrate the importance of pavilion exhibitions for architects.

In addition to being an exciting new highlight during last year’s Architect’22, Thematic Pavilion is also a phenomenon that will elevate the works of Thai architects to the level of world-class design and exhibition with the unique concept by shifting its focus to the dimension of building materials.

What is Thematic Pavilion?

As the highlight of the Architect Expo, Thematic Pavilion is a collaborative design space for building material brands and architects, combining the ability to develop innovations with the interpretation of such innovations in different styles into concepts and designs.

Thematic Pavilion, therefore, is both a space for showcasing the possibilities of materials through their usage in a new, unique, and different way and an exhibition that creates an experience through various elements to create atmosphere in a large area.

What will visitors and exhibitors gain from Thematic Pavilion?

For architects and designers, Thematic Pavilion provides the perfect opportunity to witness properties of materials in a creative context for a new and exciting way of usage. For exhibitors, Thematic Pavilion is a space to exhibit products, particularly showcasing the extent in which they can be used, attracting visitors in a different way than ordinary exhibits.

In addition, for all visitors, after experiencing the architecture and features accentuated through interesting concepts, visitors are welcomed to vote for their favourite Thematic Pavilion to determine the winner of the Thematic Pavilion of the Year award.
